VALORANT patch 3.03 brings some heavily awaited map updates, Viper bug fixes, and more. Below are the full patch note details.

Similar to the last three patches, Riot has only made a few subtle changes to VALORANT in patch 3.03. Previously we’ve seen a huge update follow after some minor patches, and with the next patch supposedly being the release of Episode 3 Act 2, we should expect some pretty big changes.

In patch 3.03, we see a fix to a Viper bug that was accidentally added in patch 3.01 that altered the way her ultimate is deployed. When the bug was first found, Viper players believed it was an intentional buff for the agent, but sadly it was accidental.

Patch 3.03 also includes an along-awaited map update, allowing players to shoot through Radianite crates when using penetrative weapons.
